Without question Claude Monet is best known for his garden-scapes of ponds, lilies, and blankets of radiant flowers. This period of the artist's life reflects the 40 years that he spent at his country home in Giverny, a beautiful retreat nestled on the Seine in northern France. Collected within this edition are 81 paintings from these years, accompanied with a fascinating narrative on Monet's life, loves, and influences. Recounting Monet's development from an Impressionist to an innovative abstractionist, the book is both informative to read, and exquisite to look at.
